Investors have been surprised by the resilience of economies and equity markets this year. Could this all be too good to be true, and what steps can investors take to protect their portfolios?
Three sources of risk merit particular attention:
- US equities are supported by just a handful of super-cap technology companies. This is without precedent and unlikely to be sustainable.
- Interest rate rises are yet to be fully felt. Meanwhile, central banks are entering uncharted waters as they begin to reduce their colossal bond holdings.
- China’s ban on Apple products is just the latest volley in an intensifying rivalry between the US and China that is unravelling globalisation.
